RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — You’ve heard about firefighters rescuing cats that have gotten stuck in a tree, but the situation Tuesday morning in Richmond was a little different, as members of the Richmond Fire Department sprang into action to rescue a dog trapped in a well.

Crews responded to 3412 Terminal Avenue and located the canine at the bottom of the 25-foot well.

The department’s Heavy Technical Rescue Team was called to the scene, and they were able to successfully bring the dog to the surface after about an hour.

Crews say once the dog was rescued, he quickly returned to his dog house.
